Animal Webaction visited the site 18 February 2024 and confirms the situation described below.

1. In Serbia, Svetlana is running out of kibble to feed the 198 dogs she cares for in her shelter. They'll starve if no one helps!


"I'm on the brink of running out of kibble, with nearly 200 dogs in my shelter waiting to be fed every single day. I've tried everything I could to make the kibble last for as long as possible, but I've now reached the limits of this solution, as I can't keep rationning kibble if I don't have any left...

I've already had to make difficult choices in distributing the remaining food available, always hoping it wouldn't lead to the worst. But seeing my dogs go hungry is really painful, and my heart sinks with the thought of not being able to feed them soon. 

Their survival hangs by a very fragile thread, as they fully depend on my capacity to find kibble, and I don't have the slightest lead of a solution to fix that. I am really worried about a kibble shortage, and the dire consequences it would have."

2. Without kibble, starvation could have devastating consequences on the dogs, Svetlana fears the worst!


"The prospect of starvation is terrifying, as it is not just some random unlikely specter, it is something that could happen for real, and that could bring irreversible harm to the dogs I've vowed to protect. 

The lack of kibble could lead to a tragic spiral of malnutrition, illness and worse, the thought of any of them facing this is something I can't bear. And it goes beyond the dogs in my shelter, as it also means I won't be able to help strays in distress, who might starve as well or be forced into dangerous situations just to find something to eat. 

My heart is heavy, this scenario is my nightmare as I know all too well that some will not survive a kibble shortage, and I might face losses I can't be prepared to endure."

3. Svetalana's attempts to find kibble have failed one after the other, leaving her a little more helpless each time. This campaign is her last hope.


"Sometimes I feel like my calls for help vanish into the void, with little to no response. Despite applying for grants and reaching out to many businesses, the support I hoped I would get hasn't materialized. I've tried to find sustainable solutions, like negotiating payment plans with suppliers or seeking further discounts, but to no avail.

Other shelters are unfortunately struggling as well so they cannot help, even for such an emergency, as they need to think about their dogs first, which I can of course understand. I love my dogs to bits, I would never ever let them down, and I'm doing everything in my power to keep them protected, but I feel more and more isolated and helpless as options keep fading."

4.  Svetlana isn't asking for money, only kibble to prevent the dogs from starving.


"Each day without kibble dims the hope of maintaining a sanctuary for these dogs. The shortage ripple through everything, it compromises the care I can provide, the rescues I can make, the partnerships of local and international supporters, and so much more.

The trust I've built within my community is at stake, as is my mission of creating a no-kill environment for these dogs. If I can't care for them anymore, what will happen to them? I'm faced with the precarious balance between my ideals and the harsh reality, but I want to keep hoping and fighting."

5. Svetlana is willing to make any sacrifice to help abandoned dogs and give them a better future, but she can't do it alone.


"I am fully aware of my responsibility to these animals, it shapes every decision I make, and it drives me to overcome the obstacles that stand in our way. The support from other people, from the community, is the backbone of my efforts, it allows me to keep going as I can't carry such a weight without help.

Each dog I manage to rescue matters, but it goes further than that, as it is also about changing the way people perceive strays, hoping for a future where every dog is respected and has a home. The journey is full of setbacks and challenges, but I am still determined to make a difference for them."

6. If this campaign succeeds, Svetlana will not receive any money, but 1600 kg of kibble, delivered from the Animal Webaction logistics centre in Serbia.

Animal Webaction has a logistics centre in Serbia which allows us to intervene quickly and deliver kibble.
